Michigan Democrat Credits Trump, Malaria Drug for Turnaround

April 7, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

A Michigan Democratic state representative says she won her battle against coronavirus because of hydroxychloroquine, and because of President Donald Trump’s insistence that the medication works to treat the deadly disease.

“It has a lot to do with the president … bringing it up,” Rep. Karen Whitsett said, reports The Detroit Free Press.  

Whitsett said she learned on Monday she’d tested positive for COVID-19, but she started taking hydroxychloroquine, prescribed by her doctor, on March 31, after both she and her husband sought treatment for a range of symptoms on March 18.

The lawmaker said she felt started to feel relief just a couple hours after taking the drug, when she had been suffering shortness of breath, swollen lymph nodes, and a suspected sinus infection. She said she is still suffering from headaches.

Whitsett said she’d experienced “the wonders” of hydroxychloroquine after taking it in the past for Lyme disease, but she doesn’t think she would have asked for it or had it prescribed without Trump touting it as a COVID-19 treatment at his daily coronavirus briefings.

Some health professionals, however, have said the drug has not been properly tested and could have dangerous side effects. Further, there are complaints that Trump’s comments are causing a shortage of the drug, when people are using it for lupus and other diseases.

But Whitsett said Trump’s comments helped her, and “he is the only person who has the power to make it a priority.”

    I am happy that My president, DONALD TRUMP, encouraged us to use an avialable medication and it is working.
    Donald Trump is a strong leader and he will have my vote for a second term.

      As a lifelong Republican, I would like to tell you Democrats something, please believe me, some of you are smart, decent, and worth saving! Come on over to the winning side! We welcome those that have been lied to, and manipulated, African Americans who love this Country despite its mistakes, and Latino Americans who have been lied to, we welcome you with open arms, and open hearts!

    Democrats want people to die, and I’m sure that when they, let this virus go out into the air, they had President Trump in mind, but they should have known that others would die too! They may have thought that only infants and Republicans would die, again, that was poor judgement! They should have asked someone other than Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton!

    Someone in China must have given a vile of that deadly virus to the Trump hating leaders of the CIA, FBI, NSA, ATF, and they were probably told that only Trump family members would be affected! They really do hate Trump, Clapper, and Brennan, Comey, Baker, Wray!
